i am thinking to make the auto control buggy for handicap
actually my seniors have constructed a buggy which is just similar to an auto
but
it doesn't have the body of auto but can perform all the functions which a normal auto can do
the main thing is it is electrically driven by using batteries
they have applied the concept of generating the power using dc motors in rear tyres as i discussed
in my previous thread
also it can be handle by legs without the handle Posted in: #Coffee Room

but i am thinking to make a buggy which can have a handle + hand brake
so it is easy for those who has hands
also i want to know which kind of tyre is suitable for it so that its service should be long and shound not be easily pumcured becoz it is for handicaped
if suppose he is on highway and suddenly it puncured then it is very difficult for him to change the tyre


...also i am thinking to put the sensors on the backside of the buggy so that it is stop atleast 50 cm from any obstacle when he is reversing

Try using Tweels instead of wheels. Seems best for this application.
